Sewing Kit Features Endangered Animals To Help Kids Learn

Sewing Kit Features Endangered Animals To Help Kids Learn

MFA graduate draws from her love of wildlife to produce a hand-sewing kit that has a dual educational purpose.

Even the most crafty of young children aren’t into sewing. Perhaps the more morose sibling to the now-hip knitting and senior citizen favorite; embroidery, sewing is usually reserved for donning socks or fixing a broken bra strap. Its hardly considered a didactic tool that could be used to educate tomorrows’ impressionable minds.

Mirim Seo Kit

Mirim Seo, a recent MFA graduate from Tyler School of Art elevated her love for animals to create ‘S.E.W’ (Saving Endangered Widlife), eco-friendly and sustainable kits for learning hand-sewing techniques. Beyond the stock pile of thread, buttons, and needles, the kit includes eight animal pieces including the three-toed sloth, toucan, sea turtle and golden lion monkey.

Besides stitch holes and an instruction book with insight into the animals themselves, a kid might just learn a thing or two about the environment.
